Synopsis: Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s account of a young Dominican pitcher’s experiences in the competitive world of US baseball is a powerful and ambitious follow-up to their startlingly assured feature debut (HALF NELSON). But just as their first film was not your average high school drama, nor is SUGAR even close to being just another American sports movie. Miguel ‘Sugar’ Santos’ (Algenis Perez Soto) realises his opportunity to achieve the American Dream, when he is picked to enter a US rookie academy and given a chance to play in the major league. But thoughts of success, fame and celebrity are thwarted by the reality of his situation. Increasingly isolated, he has to decide whether to continue on the path that is expected of him, or breakout and discover his own place in the world. Featuring a remarkable performance by Algenis Perez Soto, SUGAR is an original and provocative portrait of the modern-day immigrant experience by two of America’s most distinctive young filmmakers.
